Has anyone any thoughts about spacers? I know its a bit early yet but wheels with a wider fit and 1" drop have transformed my S5.

I have wheels and spacers on my 8V RS3 and it has totally changed the way it looks. I am sure even without seeing that a suitable choice on the saloon will also make it look nicer.

 

Cars are built to accept snow chains etc so there is always room to spare in the arches. 

 

Also note the tyre choice. The Pirelli RO2 tyres have such a big rim protector it makes the tyre look stretched which further enhances the stance and look.

Thanks, when I finally get the car I will look at spacers. I'm guessing the wheel centres will be the same on the saloon as yours. What spacers are you running with?

Mounted 10mm spacers yesterday together with H&R extended wheel bolts with locks on my sportback.

I've got the 8.5J et53 front wheel and 8.0J et49 rear wheel.

Standard pirellis.

 

It looks spot on and is perfect inline with the wheel arch now.

Nice Kenny  ;)

 

I have looked up now from the Swedish Transport Agency (Driving and Transport) and it seems that Saloon has a different ET compared to the sportback.
 
As you wrote, Sportback has ET 49, and ET 53. While the Saloon has ET 42 and ET 46.

Have you an original staggered or square set up and what size of spacers did you run with? Thanks.

Hi Wotmotorsport - Are your spacers one part with the spigot and centre locator built in?

They are hubcentric so a single piece spacer
